In accordance with the decision at Carnegie's Annual General Meeting in 2007, the Chairman of the Board, Christer Zetterberg, has contacted representatives for Carnegie's largest shareholders in order to appoint a Nomination Committee consisting of not less than three and not more than five shareholder representatives, who together with the Chairman of the Board are to form the Nomination Committee.
The Nomination Committee, whose tasks include providing proposals regarding the composition of Carnegie’s Board of Directors to the 2008 Annual General Meeting, comprises:
Ulf Strömsten, Catella, Chairman of the Nomination Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org
Mats Lagerqvist, Swedbank Robur Funds, Charman of the Nomination Committee before the AGM 2007, email@example.com
Ossian Ekdahl, Första AP-Fonden, firstname.lastname@example.org
Mikael Nordberg, Danske Capital, email@example.com
Anders Oscarsson, SEB Funds, firstname.lastname@example.org
Christer Zetterberg, Chairman of the Board of D. Carnegie & Co AB, email@example.com
Comments and proposals ahead of the AGM 2008 may be addressed to any member of the Nomination Committee at the e-mail addresses above. In order to be considered, comments must be submitted to the Nomination Committee well before the presentation of the committee's proposal, which is scheduled for 14 February, 2008. The AGM in Carnegie will be held on 26 March 2008 in Stockholm.
The Nomination Committee also wishes to inform that the Chairman of the Board of Directors Christer Zetterberg has announced that he has declined re-election at the 2008 Annual General Meeting. Christer Zetterberg comments on his decision as follows:
“As Chairman of Carnegie’s Board of Directors up until the 2008 Annual General Meeting, I will continue to work actively to strengthen Carnegie and to ensure that we can leave the difficult situation that we have faced in recent months behind us. My decision not to accept nomination for re-election must be viewed against the background that when I was proposed as Chairman of the Board in 2006, I made it clear to the Nomination Committee that I was willing to take this assignment but that I considered my term as Chairman of the Board as being for a limited period, which I also repeated when questioned by last year’s Nomination Committee. I consider that the time has now come for me to resign my position as Chairman of the Board of Directors and for the Nomination Committee to submit a proposal for a new Board Chairman.”
